Milwaukee Bucks star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo missed his second consecutive game on Wednesday night after the recent birth of his son.

Antetokounmpo sat out a road contest against the Indiana Pacers, two nights after missing a home game against the Sacramento Kings. Antetokounmpo's girlfriend, Mariah Danae Riddlesprigger, gave birth to Liam Charles Antetokounmpo on Monday.

Wednesday's game was Milwaukee's final one before the All-Star break. Antetokounmpo's next appearance will be Sunday in the All-Star Game at Chicago when Team Giannis faces Team LeBron.

The reigning NBA MVP is averaging 30 points (second in the league), 13.5 rebounds (fifth in the league) and 5.8 assists in 48 games this season.
